Khar (Mumbai) School Jasudben ML School (JML), introduces a first-of-its-kind, in-curriculum, storytelling-based value enrichment programme for Classes I to IV.
The year-long programme that builds values like kindness, respect and honesty in students using Indian stories. For this, the school has engaged Amar Chitra Katha to unleash the magic of stories into the classroom.
Damayanti Bhattacharya, principal, JML School said: “Adults underestimate the power of stories and their impact on young minds. The message or moral of an interesting story creates a far greater impression on kids than the usual preaching ever does. Storytelling is a beautiful tool that simultaneously engages various parts of the mind like the cognitive, the creative and the emotional. It allows children to explore their cultural roots, experience diverse thoughts and enables them to empathise with unfamiliar people, places or situations. We are looking forward to introducing this programme with Amar Chitra Katha.”
